This course is a practicum for equipping spiritual directors, within the context of spiritual direction, to teach others how to think Christianly. Students will be trained to offer spiritual direction that is Christ-centered, evangelistic, very patient, and indirect. Prerequisites for this course include Knowing Father God, The Holy Spirit of Truth, Jesus in a Postmodern World, Knowing How to Know, Philosophy and Faith, Developing a Christian Mind, and Spiritual Direction I. Students should note that Right On Mission offers Spiritual Direction III, IV, and V through our Tutorial Services.
Key Questions To Be Explored:
When does spiritual direction become an exercise in Buddhism not Christianity?
How can the gospel effectively be shared indirectly?
How can a spiritual director be directive without being forceful or manipulative?
